Jose Mourinho has named a near unchanged side for his first home game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening against Olympiacos.

Three points on the night will guarantee Tottenham of a place in the knockout phase of the Champions League for the third season in a row, and the Portuguese tactician has decided to keep faith with the same players who guided the team to their first away Premier League win since January.

The only change sees Danny Rose come into the team in place of Ben Davies, who picked up a knock against West Ham. Tanguy Nodmbele and Jan Vertonghen have both regained their fitness and take their place on the Spurs bench.

Some Spurs fans were pleased to see Mourinho resist the need to make too many changes and were excited to see the new Spurs boss take his place in the home dugout for the first time.

Here’s how some fans reacted to the team news:

Spurs Web Opinion

It is indeed great to see that Mourinho and his coaching staff seem to prefer continuity in the team selection over constant rotation. However, I fear that the Portuguese manager might not be such a big fan of Giovani Lo Celso as the Argentine doesn’t even make the bench.
